My husband is a train fan so when I saw the panel I knew I had to make him something.  I did the piecing but had the quilting done by a friend so that he would not see.  He retired on July 29th and I was placing the last stitches in the binding when he walked in the door.

Oh, I love it! Where did you get the panel? I love trains, have loved them since I was small. Do you know any other woman who bought herself an electric train?

This is a great quilt for your hubby.  Everyone needs a good nap quilt when they retire.  :o)

My husband also loves trains.  I would also like to know if that train panel is still available for purchase.  What fabric company sells it?  I have seen train fabric before, but usually the prints are very small in size.  I like the size of the trains on this panel.  I'm sure your hubby loves it.  Good Job!!
